Classic music

I like listening classic music from time in time but I won't spend all day listening to them.   Most radio stations play any kind of songs except classic music.   For some reason, listening classic music for me is more like listening silent movies even if classic music is more older than movies.     My favourites are: Chopin, Mozart, Tchaïkovski, Strauss and others.

Challenging Google

Albert, the owner of Atariage, said Google (and other search sites) could show screenshots from my club.     Yeah! Google found a picture from "the official Robin Gravel's club".   Actually, it's a banner from the main club page where everybody can see anyway.   But can Google find my pictures from my topics/blogs inside my club?   Only the time will tell.

Grizeline gave birth.

I just discovered my cat gave birth.      I can't tell when Grizeline gave birth.   Mom knows where to hide her kitties.   I think it's three kitties from the picture.   How cute. 😍   But we have to deal with these new cats too.

What happened to my new 3ds?

I was playing on my New 3DS when my hands were stained of paint.   After further inspection, my handheld game started losing paint.     I guess newest consoles are made of cheap materials.   My original Gameboy still has great shapes, no losing paint and made in Japan.

Confusing new forum options

I had problem with uploading pictures yesterday.   So I make some tests here.       Ok. I get it. I need to choose 'choose files' option to upload pictures.    Not use 'feature photo' option to upload pictures.       The 'feature photo' is more catching and bigger than 'choose a files' option.     That's why I have trouble with the new design.   The new forum is so confusing

USB 3.0 4 Port Hub Adapter USB-C just arrived

I got my USB 3.0 4 Port Hub Adapter USB-C by mail. I thought it would be bigger but that's fine. Now I can play games using external keyboard, mouse and external DVD drive. No more bother which USB device needs to be removed to connect another one.

Minecraft New 3DS Edition breaks a new record

Minecraft New 3DS edition crashed six times yesterday at the same spot. There were at least 8 ghasts or more around the corner that makes the game to crash. If you don't know about ghasts, here the link: https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Ghast Even if Mojang dropped New 3DS edition, I still enjoy it to play.

Quake 3 Arena is still cool on windows 10

Quake 3 Arena won't install on windows 10. I think the installer is 16 bit instead 32 bit. Fortunely I managed to install the game and run. All I need is to copy the whole game to the computer and start it. Quake 3 Arena still needs the cd to run.

Fallout

I checked my old cds from magazines and I found a demo of Fallout. Since this game was praised by many players, I decided to try it. To play this demo on windows 10, set to windows 95 compatible. Fallout is a game about a desolate world when few people survives. The little village runs by two gangs: fools and crypts. The crypts is the dominant gang because they have a generator for the whole village. Thanks to remind me it's just a demo. Also I can't save or load either. When t

Trash day: what is it?

Tomorrow is trash day. When neighboroughts throw away their stuff, something pays me attention. Someone throws away a painting. Probably his/her first try. I can't tell what is it and who drawn it. The author thinks this painting does not have any values and belongs to trash. Maybe he/she has personal reasons to not keep it. I decided to left the picture. It's not worth to have trouble by stealing garbage stuff. It's not happen often to find paintings in a trash can.

GOOMW! new demo

I worked on Get Out Of My Way, a brawler/beat'em up game for Colecovision. What's new: - More bad guys to punch. Ouch! - You can beat down the ennemies at any order. - Three rooms to deal with. I noted there some lags or slowdown in the game. Bad guys won't fight. They will someday. Here the rom to play with: result.rom That's all. Good bye.
 

Little progress on GOOMW

I spent all day on Get Out of My way, a brawler game. Believe me: programming is HARD. In the second screen, you need to fight bad guys in the RIGHT order, or the game will allow to go to next room before defeat all of them. I guess because in the first screen, you fight bad guys in the order. Somehow, the game uses the same pattern. Sorry for extra status on the screen. I need them to check where the problems come from. That's all for today. Or tonight.
 

Windows 10 updated :(

When I turn on my laptop, it spends all morning to update windows 10 then, It starts asking stupid/private questions. I do my best to bypass this polls, but not, I need to answer them. Once it's finished, I noted Java is gone. Any programs who need java won't work. So I need to reinstall it. It's a bad day.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

I watched a trailer of a upcoming movie. Pikachu's voice is more mature here and he speaks like us. I wonder if this movie is based from Detective Pikachu from 3DS game. I can't wait to read reviews of this movie.

GOOMW! + Tricky text mode

I worked on GET OUT OF MY WAY!, a colecovision brawler game. A new room is added. Also I worked on the fighter sprites again. I hate seeing backgrounds through the fighters. I took another look at the 40 columns text mode. The first thing I noted is if I type print_at(0,1,"1234567890123456789012345678901234567890");, it will show at 33th column of the same line instead to the next line. Maybe there are tricks to do it right. I have an idea using this mode. A text game?
